KML is not able to give out over the counter (OTC) medication of ANY kind due to Wisconsin state law. Any OTC medication a student needs (Sudafed, Tylenol, Advil, cough drops, etc.) must be supplied by each student’s parent or guardian in the manufacturer’s original package. These over the counter medications can be kept in the student’s personal, locked, school-assigned locker. These are for personal use only and cannot be shared with any other persons. A completed parent authorization form is required even if students will keep their OTC medication in their lockers.
If you want to provide OTC medication that would be kept for your child in the KML Main Office, you will need to fill out a medication authorization form and hand it in to the office along with the medication in its original package with dosage amounts and times listed on the bottle – FOR EACH CHILD. In other words, siblings may not share medication from the same bottle or container, and a parent authorization form is needed for each child.
